Gold Foil Press - Splinterlands' Email News - 11/16 Issue

By Chris Roberts | Splinterlands | 17 Nov 2020

Welcome back to the Gold Foil Press, the best source for official Splinterlands news and updates!

We hope that you have been blessed with vast quantities of Dark Energy Crystals, and many of your Loot Chests have held Gold Foil cards!


Land Presale Stage 2


Stage 1 of our Land Presale was a success, although unfortunately we cannot say it went off without a hitch. The good news is demand was high and we sold out in a mere 21 seconds! The second good news is that all problems caused by high traffic in the first stage will be solved in the 2nd stage!

A lottery system was used to decide who was able to purchase Regions (1000 Plots) in the 1st stage. Players were overwhelmingly satisfied with the way the 27,000 Lottery Plots were sold. As a result, all land available in the 2nd stage will be sold via a similar Lottery system.

The main reason for this update is to ensure that everyone who wants land has an equal chance at acquiring it, regardless of how much they are looking to spend.
